The concert opens with Symphony No. 4 by Gustav Mahler, inviting listeners into an exuberant drama filled with congeniality, introspection, and ultimate innocence. Maestro Robert Moody pairs this readily accessible masterwork with Igor Stravinsky’s sumptuous ballet score, The Firebird. One of the most popular of all orchestral works, the shimmering musical fairy tale dazzles in performance by the virtuosic Festival Orchestra.
